How do you register or secure patent rights?
A Finnish national patent can be applied for at the National Board of Patents and Registration (NBPR). The application must be in writing and all the relevant forms can be found on NBPR’s website (www.prh.fi). The application may be drafted in Finnish, Swedish or English. It may also be filed in another language, but a translation into one of the three mentioned languages has to be submitted for the application to be examined. If the applicant wishes to receive the NBPR decision in English, it should be mentioned in the application. The claims and an abstract must be submitted to NBPR in Finnish before the application is made available to the public.
